The situation in Ferguson, Missouri is, well, terrifying. Protestors have been greeted with tear gas, rubber bullets, and armored vehicles, and it doesn’t look like the situation is going to end anytime soon. This has a lot of people, like John Legend, very worried.

Like many people, Legend has been posting his views and retweeting messages about the situation in Ferguson on Twitter.

Things got interesting last night when he was called out by a news station.

IBBN News initially seemed apologetic about the tweet and promised to delete it in the morning.

But then they realized that it was getting a lot of attention and tried to capitalize on the controversy.

John Legend didn’t engage with the online news station again but he has been responding to other people on Twitter.

Do you have a problem with celebrities like John Legend voicing their opinion on social issues?
